My mother was in Heartland of Mentor in the rehab section. She was there for about six to eight weeks. We like it very much. They also have a long-term nursing wing but we didn't like that as much. The facility itself was in a wooded area. The living environment was very lovely. They also have gardens and stuff outside. You could take somebody in a wheelchair out there. The staff was good. The care was good. They have a wonderful rehab staff. She had therapy three times a day with different people for physical, occupational, and speech therapy. They were very good at their job. They were prompt and they took her every day. She made some real progress so that she was able to leave and go live on her own again. I would definitely recommend this place for rehab.
My mom was in a room with another person. I wouldn't say it was spacious; all you have room for was your bed, your little nightstand, a kind of wardrobe thing for both people, and then a bathroom that was shared. That's adequate when you're there for rehab, but if it came to living there, that wouldn't be adequate for her. You also don't have your own furniture there in their room. We wanted my mom to be able to have some of her belongings. Overall, they were good to her. However, as far as staying there, it wasn't the same kind of atmosphere as the other places. It wasn't homey to live there.
